I don't know about 100%, but the whole point of DSO is to play entire Dead shows. Bob didn't play Garcia tunes when he was alive because Jerry was there to play them himself. Would you play Eruption if Eddie Van Halen was on stage with you? No, you wouldn't, and if you did Eddie would laugh his ass off.
Phil is a smokin bass player, can't sing his way out of a paper bag, but he's in the top 5 rock bass players all time.
I think he only plays Jerry tunes because the fans want to hear them. We all miss Jerry. There was never a Grateful Dead show played that didn't have Phil Lesh playing bass, if anyone has earned the right to play Jerry songs, it's Phil. Good, bad or indifferent.

I hope you didn't pay too much for the tix. But honestly, what were you expecting? Phil blew out what little voice he had in the early 70's and he was never a prolific songwriter. So what songs did you think Phil was going to perform? Box of Rain and then what?
Sometimes you need to have the proper outlook on what you're gonna see. If you have unrealistic expectations then you will always be let down.
